Falls can be dangerous at any age, but for the elderly a fall can mean
losing independence, a long hospital stay and even death. The good news
is that many falls are preventable. Sept. 22, 2017 is the annual Falls
Prevention Awareness Day. The National Council on Aging provides videos,
handouts, infographics and other resources to educate the public about
how to prevent falls in the home and elsewhere.
